Googling my Fourtrak tyre pressure ("4 PSI rule"), as I had forgot what they are when using 31" tyres, came across this wild statement from Cooper Tires:
"Beware of vehicle placards with recommendations below 30psi.
Some older vehicles may still show lower pressures which were
used to “enhance” ride but resulted in poor tyre life and in some
circumstances are dangerous." ... ssures.pdf
